Dell XPS L501X and upgrade RAM

(I'm new user, so I'm sorry if I did not have it here and sorry for my English)
I have laptop Dell XPS L501X and I change RAM. But! I change RAM to G.SKILL RIPJAWS SO-DIMM and my laptop now doesn't work.
I turn on my laptop and next I start Windows 10, but bluescreen pops up with kod error: Kernel security check failure. I run Linux and the computer turns off. BIOS sees this RAM.
Does this mean that RAM is damaged?
I checked on two laptops and does not work at all.
I was looking, but I have not found that this RAM memory was not compatible with this laptop
